Webb never ceases to amaze

Justin Webb continues his quest to prove that he has no sense of embarrassment.

A TAE reader points us to Webb's latest "From Our Own Correspondent" contribution, in which he claims, in all seriousness, that:
I know you'd never heard of [Scooter Libby] till last week but he's the fourth most powerful man in the world: it goes Bush, Cheney, Rove, Libby.
Listening to Webb's political analysis is starting to feel like listening to a singer whose total lack of musical talent is matched only by a complete absence of self-awareness about that talent. It is painful and cringe-inducing. I find it amazing that even the BBC, as bad as it is, sees fit to employ this buffoon.

The Florence Foster Jenkins of British journalism, perhaps?
